I started by masking off the bottom strip and inking through with two stencils - Grid and Feeling Gritty and two colours. Then I removed the mask and created the vertical strip in the same way but reversing the colours.
I stamped words and phrases from Funky Fossil's Small Print on top of the stencilled strips and added a main sentiment using Happy Words, also from Funky Fossil.
Inks: Ranger distress, blueprint sketch, lucky clover; Versafine Clair, nocturne
